The origins of the Czech National Branch of IAML date back to 1971, when it was established as the Czechoslovak IAML Group. However, direct, immediate cooperation with IAML goes back further, to 1956, when mutually effective—and for us, directly representative—international cooperation in the field of one of the most important IAML inventory projects, namely RISM, started and then successfully developed. Here we belong to the contributors for more than half a century. This was followed relatively early, in the second half of the 1960s, by cooperation with another inventory project – RILM.
The international annual congress of IAML, held in August 1991 in Prague for the first time, became an important stimulus for further development of both Czech cooperation with the IAML and professional activities of this kind in the Czech Republic. In 2022, the IAML International Congress was held again in Prague, after two years of postponements caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The second IAML Congress took place in the Municipal and National Library in Prague and was attended by 320 visitors.
The Czech national branch has 14 international institutional members and 13 national members (12 institutional and 1 individual).
